Hikvision Donates $15K to Support Team 5 Foundation Relief Efforts
Along with the cash contribution, Hikvision donated security gear that will be used to help families in need who live in dangerous and difficult-to-reach areas.
Team 5 volunteers deploy to dangerous and difficult-to-reach areas around the globe to teach medicine to local health practitioners, run free dental and medical clinics, and support communities after a natural disaster. Team 5 also donates medical supplies, solar lights and clean water units.
Part of the World Health Organization, the nonprofit is given special permission to enter areas that others cannot.
“We appreciate the partnership with Hikvision and their monetary and technology contributions to the Team 5 Foundation. Hikvision’s investment will allow us to continue our life-changing campaigns in 2019 and their cutting-edge thermal technology contribution will allow us to be more efficient in our life saving efforts,” says Eric Linder, founder and CEO of Team 5.
Hikvision’s gaming business development manager and U.S. Air Force veteran Scott Bartlett is a Team 5 volunteer. “We perform surgeries and provide basic health services for indigenous peoples, and educate the tribes on best practices for general healthcare as well as midwife best practices,” he says.
“At Hikvision we have a saying, ‘See Far, Go Further,’ and this business philosophy beautifully aligns with the Team 5 organization as a group of dedicated military veterans who are willing to go where other humanitarian organizations will not to help some of the most remote needs on the planet,” says Jeremy Howard, Hikvision vice president of vertical business development.
Hikvision donated a thermal pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) camera that will be installed on a Team 5 Toyota Quick Response Vehicle. The company also donated a thermal scope for Team 5’s online annual silent auction. Hikvision’s Howard announced the donations at the annual Team 5 fundraiser kickoff dinner in Las Vegas.
